A landscape blanketed in snow takes on a dreamy purple haze in a series by photographer Caitlin Fullam shot through the winter of 2021 in Boulder, Colorado. Returning to her prime inspiration – the beautiful landscape found in her mountainous backyard of Boulder – Fullam once again indulges her adventurous spirit to capture the season at its frosty finest. The playful imagery and whimsical dreamscapes usually associated with her work are found throughout the series. Shot with 35mm Fuji Velvia film, the collection is lit by a pastel gaze that colors the shots with waves of mauves, lilacs, and violets, enhancing the heavy skies and shimmering snow.
The images were lightly edited in Lightroom to magnify the cinematic aspects of the photographs and enhance the evocative sense of wonder that serves as a basis of what Fullam attempts to deliver in all her work. In her own words, “Creating the most realistic image is not important to her- creating a feeling is.”
